Friday Potpourri

Thankful for Friday
and for a long weekend
that will be full of family, friends and food!

the leaves are slowly changing
seems later this year ~ but everything is about a month late
around these parts

a late spring into a summer that we thought would never arrive
then when the calendar said it was fall
it was still feeling like summer ~ warm days and evenings
windows still open

but things change quickly
we have had our first frost ~ cool foggy mornings
but oh so nice days

I have been trying to stop and pay attention
all week long
looking around at what I take for granted
it is the little things that mean so much
and make a difference in our lives

grateful for an evening filled with flowers, 
friends and fun when we took a centerpiece class
I don't think Martha will see it and say "we need her on staff"
but there were lots of laughs

still panning and looking for inspiration for the living room
was hoping to paint this weekend but that is not going to happen
so wait I will and then get out looking for furniture
as I want to love it and not settle because I have some sort of deadline
because I don't

also in the midst of menu planning ~ list making
as I am hosting dinner on Sunday
I will do some of the work tomorrow to cut down on prep
it's so much easier to just throw things in the oven the day of
looking so forward to it!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends
and Happy Week-end to the rest!

I'm so glad I live in a world with Octobers ....and in a world with blog posts from Lori. As usual I love all of your images and your thought provoking words. I agree about being grateful for the little things. And what?! You took a centerpiece class? Hey where's those pictures hahaha sounds like you're enjoying your October. I've been away for a bit and I'm just stopping by to say Hi.
